ScreenCloud Touch enables users to view screen content on a touch device, and obtain the information they need, when they need it.

ScreenCloud Post

At the moment there are two ways to enable touchscreen (Touch) capabilities with ScreenCloud

1. Use the native ScreenCloud app on your touch device

The ScreenCloud app is available for the Amazon Fire tablets and Android tablets.

Native Player Set Up Guide

Set up your tablet as a screen inside Studio

1.1 Get started by logging into your ScreenCloud account here

1.2 Launch the SC app on your tablet device. Take note of the 6 digit pairing code.

1.3 Inside Studio set up a new screen. Enter the 6 digit pairing code.

1.4 Add a channel & content to this newly paired screen

⚠️ A channel has to be added to a screen for Touch to work. See ‘Setting up a Channel for Touch’ below

1.5 On the screen’s ‘Device’ settings in Studio toggle on ‘Touch’ (see below) then refresh the screen

If you do not want the splash screen & play button to be shown you can enter the following data into the data fields under Location & Data:

Enter: sc_menuSplashEnabled : false

1.6 Done. You can now interact with the content on your touch device.

At present we only support Amazon FireOS, meaning you will need to have or purchase an Amazon Fire device & download the SC app. We do not support touch on ScreenCloud Windows player, or the ScreenCloud iPadOS app.

Support for Android is coming after 2nd December 2022. The app is not yet available in the Play Store.

2. Use the Chrome browser on your touch device

If you do not have a device, or if you device is currently not supported, you can still enable Touch in a browser on any touchscreen device. For example, using the Chrome browser on an iPad, a Samsung tablet, or an Amazon Fire device.

2.3. Inside Studio set up a new screen. Enter the 6 digit pairing code.

2.4. Add a channel & content to this newly paired screen

⚠️ A channel has to be added to a screen for Touch to work. See ‘Setting up a Channel for Touch’ below

2.5. In Studio navigate to the screen’s ‘Device’ settings in the side bar and toggle on the ‘Touch’ feature

2.6. Refresh the browser on your touch device. The touch menu will now appear.

2.7. Done. You can now interact with the content on your touch device inside your browser

💡 Protip: Press the fullscreen button to force the browser into fullscreen mode.

Setting up a Channel for Touch

To browse content from the Touch menu, set up playlists for different content themes. Playlists will appear in the order you have them in the channel. See example below.

💡 Protip: Think of playlists like ‘folders’. Whatever is in these folders will be presented on the touch device. Playlists are a simple way to group different types of content easily.

Landing Page Themes

To setup the landing page with brand logos, font, and colour, the Channel needs to have a theme applied. The logo from the theme, channel name with the title font and primary color will be applied to the landing page

Default if no theme is applied

With theme applied

How this feature can be used

  • Display health and safety content in a playlist that users can navigate themselves. This can include imagery, videos or PDF documents. Employers can create their own health and safety content in Canvas, upload it to a playlist + channel, then display it on the touch screen device.
  • Browse a playlist of employees being recognised for recent achievements. Upload images or create Canvases for each, then upload to a playlist + channel.
  • ‘Meet the team’ photos, names, and bios of recent new hires as a way for other employees to get to know who they are.
  • Display images carousel from recent company events to showcase your culture.
  • Display a presentation of monthly updates using an embedded Google slideshow. Use the Embed app to add an embedded Google Slide deck and allow employees to navigate that content at their own pace to read important company updates.
  • Upload a video of a ‘CEO update’ and allow employees to watch that in a break room area.
